Europa Cosplay Cup

December 1, 2024
Toulouse, France


  • The Europa Cosplay Cup (E2C) is an annual solo cosplay competition which will gather around twenty cosplayers selected in their country from all over Europe.
  • The list of partner events is constantly evolving. Participants are invited to visit the official website of the competition. (http://europacosplaycup.com/)

I. General rules for selections

  • In addition to these rules, participants must comply with any general rules established by the organisers of the selection. Participants should contact them in order to obtain further information on this subject.

2. Conditions for re-using costumes

  • During the selections, the re-use of any costume is authorised as long as it respects the regulations put in place by the organisers of the selection.

  • However, the costumes having been used during a final of a continental or international competition to represent their regions/countries (for example: EC, ECG, C4, CICAF, WCS, etc.) cannot be presented for a selection or during the final of the Europa Cosplay Cup. 

3. Conditions and limit of participation

  • The competition is open to participants who:
    • will be aged 18 years old or over by the start of the event where the final is hosted. 
    • must have proof of citizenship or permanent residency of the selection country.
  • Any participant having questions about this article can directly refer to Cosplay Team for more information.

4. Judge status

  1. Restrictions
    • A person who has been a judge during a selection cannot subsequently participate in any other selection.
    • A person having been qualified during a selection cannot subsequently be a judge during another selection.

     2. Tolerances

    • The same person may be a judge at several selections during the same season. A person who participated in a selection and who was not qualified may subsequently be a judge but will therefore no longer be able to participate in any selection.

     3. Charter of conduct

    • Becoming a judge of a selection from the E2C is not trivial. In addition to choosing a representative for a competition of european scope, the organisers are in contact with many professional speakers: the event hosting the final, the events hosting the selections, sponsors, the press, etc.
    • As soon as a person agrees to become a judge for a selection, he accepts in particular:
      • To be completely objective (by following the established grading criteria)
      • To judge the costume and the performance on the day of the competition, and not the participant himself
      • not to disclose any personal data, private information and/or of a manifestly confidential nature to third parties or on social networks

5. Qualification during a selection

  • For each selection, a participant will be qualified as a representative of a country. In case that the selected representative would not be able to attend the final, a runner-up will also be selected.
  • Any participant having qualified during a selection will no longer be able to participate in another selection.

6. Helper status

  • Participants in the final are authorised to bring one helper into the spaces which will be reserved for cosplayers taking part in the final. However, this access to spaces will be limited to certain hours and certain areas will remain out of access. The helper must spontaneously present themselves to the France Cosplay staff on their arrival in order to obtain more information on the conditions of access.
  • The helper must assume all costs related to their travel.
  • The helper will be able to help on certain specific points insofar as the pose will have been seen with the props beforehand during the rehearsals.
